Yeah, you read it correctly... Let me explain.

Several times now, I have visited this site to experience a whining sound coming from my speakers that sounds like....well....a low toned mosquito. At first, I thought...uh, oh...hardware failure...and to make a looooong story short determined that it only happens when I visit THIS site.

Am I friggin crazy? Anyone else have this happen???? I keep multiple sessions of my browser open, and I find that if I shut down the ATS one, the sound disappears immediately...so it HAS to be an ad, right????

Down right criminal.....

The noise you are hearing is from a banner ad at the top of the page. Shoot the mosquito once and it will go away for a while.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I didn't see a banner ad with a mosquito. I think I saw it on some other subject matter that I can't recall. I also think I know the one you are talking about, and I don't remember it sounding like this at all....

I have to agree that ad is obnoxious! there should be some stipulations on not having sound in ads, especially a buzzing sound like that, i would NOT even think about clicking it or going to that site if they want to annoy me like that!

It isn't limited to mosquitoes, but this topic is already being discussed here:

Worst Ads Ever! (SkepticOverlord's Ad Hitlist)

Hopefully the Overlord will swat that pestilent ad soon.
